Chameleon Pilot at WRDSB Secondary Schools

Tags : 

At the beginning of the school calendar year (Sept ’17) the Waterloo Regional District School Board (WRDSB) allowed Chameleon into the secondary schools on a pilot project. The project, deliver the school announcements in a more interesting and interactive way. Now half way through the school year, over half the high schools in the region are now using Chameleon as part of their workflow.

School announcements are still delivered over the schools PA system, but many schools are doing more. Radio broadcast/recording of announcements and digital displays are just a few of the new methods. Problem is managing these displays. Schools have little budget for expensive signage solutions. They are also tasked with keeping content updated. Most use Google Slides so the entire presentation needs to be updated daily.

Chameleon is showing is value to the regions schools and growing in popularity. For the first time ever, high school scores for basketball, volleyball are being shown in the schools – not just reserved for the board’s web site which few look at, certainly not students. This is possible with Chameleon’s content groups and user levels. Regional information can be made ‘global’ and shared by all schools, while each school has it’s own localized content which only they can see.
